Urea kinetic modeling. Definition

Medical Definition: urea kinetic modeling

Dialysis method of assessing the appropriate (individualized optimal dose) that determines a maximum clearance of waste products and a good quality of life. It is based on the rate of generation and urea removal, as assessed by several indicators, levels of urea or BUN, percent reduction of urea during dialysis, total clearance of urea normalized or corrected for distribution volume (Kt / v), solute removal index, protein catabolic rate (PCR) and average concentration of urea (TAC). Most of these parameters are calculated with mathematical formulas.
